to succeed in the first place. >> thank you. the law is based on a massachusetts program that began when mitt romney was governor. major garrett is at the white house. good morning. >> good morning, norah and charlie. they don't deny that it's a mess and individuals are frustrated at having to change their policies even though president obama promised them they could keep them because they don't comply with the new plan. the website is getting better and they say will be fully operational in about a month and that those in the individual market comprise only 5% of those in the country and over time they'll be able to find better coverage and possibly health care subsidies when it's fully operational. what does massachusetts have to do with all this, norah? >> it was in 2006 that they had to have coverage. this website had a tough rollout. people waited until the last minute and some parts of the law were changed. that will be the president's message today. bumpy rollouts are nothing new. that's a tough message but it's the only one the white house has. norah and charlie? >> major, thank you.
it problematic to the american people. dagen: what are those, tevi? are they flaws in the law, or are they fixable? >> well, the code is fixable, but i'm not sure the law is fixable. president obama said that he was going to cover all these people, plus if you like your health care, you can keep it. i don't think those promises can be sustained together. so we're already seeing costs going up, and that's going to continue to be a problem. if you like your health care, it's not going to be the case because you're seeing lots of employers saying, actually, we're going to change it, and then we're also seeing the problem of people dropping folks from coverage. and even in terms of overall coverage, they said they were going to get universal coverage, but we're still going to have 30 million uninsured by 2019. dagen: the goal of the law is to insure all americans, you have several million who do lose current insurance that they have or are forced to go into the exchanges, for example, with or without a subsidy, will that outrage be enough for the white house to do anything about t
tell you that from representing whistleblowers for years. these violate numerous national laws as well as international laws. so i don't know if it's a matter of modifying them. i think you may not have heard the level of outrage from spain that you did because you didn't hear about the head of the state employing monitored. initially, germany had a rather soft reaction to the idea its citizens were being monitored but then when angela merkel found out she was being monitored, she was furious. i am not sure why we are monitoring. historically, i agree that intelligence agencies and embassies of other states monitor each other all the time. i don't think anyone has a problem request that buzz when you are monitoring a entirely innocent population and the head of state for that particular country, that seems like a breadth of surveillance that has no historical precedent. >> they say we weren't really listening to the phone calls of all of these citizens. it was the meta data argument that they are keeping drag of whom is calling whom. citizens in spain could be connect with people in pa
's signature health care law, welcome to, everyone, this is "around the world" and a special welcome to our international viewers joining us all of this week. i'm michael holmes. >> i'm hala gorani. we'll have a lot more on the obama carrollout and some of the issues they've had with the website, of course. but for now, let's, as i was saying, moving on there to president obama's signature health care law under fire at a congressional hearing right now. >> yeah, and today we actually heard an apology. this from the administrator whose agency oversaw the creation of the enrollment website, the centers for medicare and medicaid services. have a listen. >> consumers are eager to purchase this coverage. and to the millions of american who have attempted to use healthcare.gov to shop and enroll in health care coverage, i want to apologize to you the website has not worked as well as it should. we know how desperately you need affordable coverage. i want to assure you healthcare.gov can and will be fixed. we are working around the clock to deliver the experience that you deserve. we are seeing im
on anyone except for valid foreign intelligence purposes and only work within the law. >> reporter: abc news has confirmed reports u.s. intelligence has listened in on the phone conversations of the leaders of 35 american allies. reports that drew sharp criticism from top members of congress in both parties. >> the reports are very disturbing. friends don't spy on friends. >> reporter: or do we? is spying on friends still going on? >> is the united states now listening in on the phone conversations of friendly presidents and prime ministers? >> john, i'm not going to get in to discussions of specific activities, intelligence gathering activities. >> we are listening in to the conversations of friendly heads of state. >> again i'm not going to talk about specific or alleged or reported intelligence gathering operations. >> reporter: the head of the nsa warned that new limits on u.s. espionage could be dangerous. >> is much more important for this country that we defend this nation and take the beatings than to give up on a program that would result in this nation being attacked. >> reporter:
the president's health care law is facing an angry congress. cbs news learns the white house had weeks of warning. >> only on "cbs this morning" a u.s. soldier rescues a translator that saved his life. we're there reunion. >>> mark phillips is in the town using the bright idea to see the light. >> we begin with a look at today's eye opener your world in 90 seconds. >> i'm as frustrated and angry as anyone with the launch of healthcare.gov. you deserve better. i apologize. >> secretary sebelius faces a grilling on capitol hill. >> house republicans have been calling for her head over the botched obama care roll out. >> i hope what we hear from se sebelius is resignation. >> the nsa keith alexander says the u.s. has never gathered phone and e-mail you records of citizens in france and spain. >> there has not been a mass casualty in the u.s. since 2001. >> wall street stocks at an all time high. >> storm led to a series of deadly crash on an arizona highway. >> i jumped out and took off running down the road. >> nine hours to catch a black bear. >> a young boy jumped
lawfulness but on its face i don't see any evidence they're flouting the law. they're using it in ways the companies and public did not expect. >> ifill: that's exactly what it is. so tell me what kind of information they're getting. are they actually getting information from people's accounts? do we even know? or is this just the fact that they have the ability to get this information? >> well, we don't know how much they're keeping. but the way the law works, as soon as you touch it, as soon as you divert the information from where it's been going into a pot that you control, that's called acquisition. that's collection and that is restricted by law. now, we've changed the law after 9/11 to say just that it's okay to -- it's okay to collect information from u.s. facilities because lots of foreign traffic passes through there. now, we have not added restrictions because a lot of americans' traffic passes through foreign switches. we now have this global internet and so you can be sitting in boise and log on to your yahoo! account or your google account and you're actually talking to a
